Fun Day Monday: “Feminine Products”

November 30, 2009

This one’s a kinda combo platter kine post: Combination Survey Thursday & Fun Day Monday. Hopefully, you’ll participate as if it were both days, meaning double the comments. 8) *sigh* A fella can dream right? 😉

So a few weeks ago, a co-worker told me that the sign of true love is if a man buys his woman (for lack of a better word) “pads”. OK, sorry, “feminine products”… I’ve actually heard this several times before and was wondering why in the heck women always want their men to buy them “pads” to prove their love?

Me? I’d rather not. I’m embarrassed enough to have to buy a risque magazine on my own… (That is, of course, if I were to even be that kind of sleazy pervert to begin with!) 😉 Actually, I do have to confess. I did have to sleaze it up once when we bought a friend (who was getting married) a dirty magazine. Of course, we even threw in the obligatory pack of gum, as if it were going to throw the cashier off or somethin’. 8)

My co-worker then posed an interesting twist to this. Since her hubby does this for their daughter, she asked if I’d buy these wondrous products for my future daughter. Eeeeenteresting. That’s a tricky one, but I actually think I would. For some reason, that’s a different story. Strange eh?

So where you at? I’m curious to know where all of y’all stand on this topic. Here are the many combinations, depending on your sex and marital status: 😛

* If you are a guy:
– Would you buy the FPs for your girlfriend (if you were single)?
– Would you buy the FPs for your wife (if you were married)?
– Would you buy the FPs for your future daughter?
– Have you ever bought the FPs for any girlfriend?
– Have you ever bought the FPs for your wife?
– Have you ever bought the FPs for your daughter?

* If you are a gal:
– Would you make your boyfriend buy you your FPs (if you were single)?
– Would you make your hubby buy you your FPs (if you were married)?
– Did you ever make any boyfriend buy you your FPs?
– Did you ever make your hubby buy you your FPs?
– Do you think this is a sign of true love? Why?

*Here’s mine:
– Would you buy the FPs for your girlfriend (if you were single)? Nope.
– Would you buy the FPs for your wife (if you were married)? Rather not.
– Would you buy the FPs for your future daughter? Perhaps.
– Have you ever bought the FPs for any girlfriend? Nope (thank the heavens!).
– Have you ever bought the FPs for your wife? Nope.
– Have you ever bought the FPs for your daughter? N/A

Whew! What a way to start the work week yeah? Someone’s gotta spice things up around here… 😛 Have a great week y’all!

Talk to me!
* Thoughts on Tiger Woods’ crash? Something’s fishy yeah?
* Any “New Moon” reviews out there (good or bad)?
* Other movies you wanna see? I kinda wanna see Ninja Assassin (though not a big fan of Rain playing the lead role) and This Is It.
* Thoughts on Adam Lambert’s AMA performance?
* Christmas plans? All set?

Holla!

Where In Hawaii is Edward Sugimoto? – November 25, 2009

November 25, 2009

Congrats to M for capturing his 3rd WIH victory last week by correctly guessing Cafe Laufer. Please help me share tha love with bruddah emmz. 🙂

This week, we’re gonna mix it up a bit to make things a lil’ more eeeenteresting. Since there are only a few known “hotspots” around the island of Lanai, I thought I’d make it a tad more challenging by offering up 4 cropped photos of the non-standard fare. Each photo will be worth 1 point, with the first guy or gal guessing all 4 correctly getting a whoppin’ 4 points! More chances for all to score points and move up da rankings. Smaht chyea? Hehe!

A-ight, so hurr we go. Good luck y’all!

Fun Day Monday: Free Transport from NAIA Airport

November 23, 2009

Happy Fun Day Monday y’all! This one was forwarded to me by my Filipino friend Glenn, so no get mad at me if you feel offended. Kay kuya.d and tita leerz? 😛 Meetcha at the bottom!

To my fellow Filipinos, Good news from GMA.

Starting January of 2010, Filipinos from all around the world will surely benefit from this one-of-a-kind service from the newly passed law by the government of the Philippines . The service is entitled Hatid Kabayan. Any Filipino who has lived in any part of the globe for more than six months is said to be entitled and will benefit from this service. As soon as he lands at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, go to a special booth that has been set up for this purpose and fill up some forms, and all he has to do is show his passport to confirm his  status abroad and everything is all set.
 
This also applies to all immigrants and non-immigrants.

Hatid Kabayan is a service where the Philippine Government has arranged a special ride for Filipinos from NAIA to any point in the Philippines or to any province. It will surely be a very memorable ride.

Hats off to GMA and the Philippine Government that in spite of this ongoing economic crisis, high fuel cost, perceived corruption, among others, they have managed to pay the returning Filipinos at least a respectable amount of gratitude and tribute for all their hard work abroad.

Specially-trained GMA employees will accommodate them and guarantee that they know every single route all across the Nation. So sit back and relax and let us be proud of what our Government can offer.

Below is the Hatid Kabayan on its Test Run. Mabuhay ang Plipinas!  Mabuhay si GMA!!!

Talk to me!
* Got any transportation horror stories to share?
* Good stories?

I have a few that include a taxi driver in San Antone with horrible B.O., a crazy, psycho shuttle van driver in Philly that almost got us into a beef (staring contest with other car sticking middle finger at us), and the mutes who don’t say a word to you. I guess that’s better than the motor mouths out there though. Hehe!

Have a great week guys!

Fave Friday: Mate Traits

November 20, 2009

Kay, I’m gonna get shmall kine heat for this one from the fellas out dea, but since it’s one year anniversary time for yours truly and the lady friend wifey, here’s a mushy topic for us to chat about today (sorry boyz!). 😛

There’s a new song out on the radio by former American Idol finalist Jason Castro called “Let’s Just Fall In Love Again” (see video and lyrics below). It’s pretty catchy and, dare I say, cute (*cringe*), but more importantly, the lyrics teach us a nice little lesson about love and how to keep that fire a burnin’ with your mate of many years.

We’ve probably got peeps up in hurr who’ve been married for decades, newlyweds, and even the singles (heyyyy!) looking for love, so along those lines, let’s post our favorite traits of our mates for a fun little Fave Friday listing.

To all y’all singles, your job is funner. List the traits you traditionally look for in a future mate. And fellas, please use “Pager Talk” like 58008 if you’re gonna be pervy! Ahahahaha! Nah! Let’s do this!

  1. Cute (inside and out) – I may’ve mentioned this before, but a wise man (my friend) once told me: “Pretty is temporary, cute lasts forever.” Word.
  2. Supportive – whatever I wish to pursue (Tin Man, getting my real estate license, interviews with celebs, etc.) she’s always so supportive.
  3. Down – is always up for something fun and spontaneous (sports, new restaurants, etc.) and rarely monkus about it. Game for almost anything, as long as it’s with me. Awwww.
  4. Tries Hard – no matter what it is, she tries her best to improve and impress.
  5. Well Liked/Lovable – whether it’s my friends, family, co-workers, etc., she can get along with any of ’em. And they all loooove her. At least that’s what they tell me. 😛

Now for the fun list. If I were to put myself in the place of a single person, I’d probably look for the following:

  1. Smile – shows that they’re nice (usually).
  2. Honesty – liars are out like trout.
  3. Genuine – can’t stand fakeness.
  4. Thoughtfulness – shows that they’re interested in you.
  5. 58008 – Bwahahahahaha! Sorry, I just had to.

So what about you bu? No be shame ’cause remember, this post is mushy to begin with. 😛 Post away!


Jason Castro – Let’s Just Fall In Love Again

Let’s pretend baby
That you’ve just met me
And I’ve never seen you before
I’ll tell all my friends
That I think you’re starin’
And you say the same to yours

And oh, we’ll dance around it all night
And then I’ll follow you outside
And try to open up my mouth
And nothing comes out right

And I wanna fall in love with you again
I don’t have to try
It’s so easy
Who needs to pretend?
But because it’s so funny
Let’s just think about it honey
Let’s just fall in love again

I’ll call you in three days
Not too soon, not too late
And I’ll ask your roommate if you’re home
You call me on Thursday
And we’ll hang out all day
Then fall asleep on the phone

And oh, I’ll hold your hand when we drive
And we’ll lose track of all the time
And we’ll tell everyone
That we ain’t never felt so alive

And I wanna fall in love with you again
I don’t have to try
It’s so easy who needs to pretend?
But because it’s so funny
Let’s just think about it honey
Let’s just fall in love again

We’ll fall disgustingly fast
And we’ll stop hangin’ out with friends
And they’ll be so offended

And I wanna fall in love with you again
I don’t have to try
It’s so easy
Who needs to pretend?
But because it’s so funny
Let’s just think about it honey
Let’s just fall in love again

Let’s just fall in love again
So let’s just fall in love again

P.S. For anyone getting married soon, the song above is probably a cute little song for a wedding slideshow or the like. You heard it here first. You’re welcome! 😉
P.P.S. If you post something nice about your mate, and they give you a big fat smooch (or more?) as a result, you’re also welcome! 😛

Happy VHO7V Friday! Have a good weekend y’all, and be sure to tell that special someone you love them! 😉

Where In Hawaii is Edward Sugimoto? – November 18, 2009

November 18, 2009

Thanks to hemajang‘s generosity (with his submitted photo) and the Veterans Day holiday, it’s been almost a month since I’ve had to go through my archives to hunt for a WIH worthy photo. Wow, has it really been that long?

MakiSushi was on the verge of making WIH history 😛 by pulling off the back-to-back-to-back turkey, but was stumped with my Maui photo (sorry Maks! 😦 ). Local girl NeedaHobby, however, repped it valley style, and won with her Papalaua Beach Park guess on the wessssssiiiiiide of da island!

This week, we’re back to da eats. (Sorry my hungry children! 😉 ) For those who’ve been, I’m guessing this one will be another easy one. But who knows… Maybe there are many places around the state dat serve sammiches dat look la’dis!? We shall see… Post your guesses below peeps!

Fun Day Monday: Serious Grindage

November 16, 2009

OK, so for those of you who don’t know, today marks the start of Restaurant Week Hawaii, where restaurants from around Oahu create menus at special rates and donate a portion of their proceeds to benefit the development of The Culinary Institute of the Pacific. It’s from today (11/16) through Sunday (11/22) and for a good cause so get out dea and support our local businesses k?

On another note, some of you may’ve heard that the lady friend and I will be celebrating our one year wedding anniversary soon. (and noooo! that’s not what I meant by “Serious Grindage” you pervs! 😛 ) I will be taking her to _______ (shh! even SHE doesn’t know yet! 😛 ), but could use some additional suggestions and tips on where to take her and what to get her. Sorry, I’m a guy. 😛

So using the above two news items as today’s theme, send me some suggestions for your restaurant (and your favorite dishes from that restaurant) of choice for this special 1 year anniversary occasion (click here for the list of participating restaurants for Restaurant Week Hawaii). Bonus points for those who gimme good, non-food related, gift ideas. 😉 Have a great week y’all! 🙂

Fave Friday – Products To Die For

November 13, 2009

Get it? To DIE for? Friday the 13th?

*waits a few seconds*

OK, so the correlation wasn’t that obvious, but what the hey, let’s have some fun (this beat is sick)!

So erry once in a while, this beautiful-gem-of-a-face (*barf*) gets a widdle flaw we like to call a pimple. Normally, I would just sit it out and wait ’til da buggah goes away. No problem.

Recently though, wifey introduced me to this gem-of-a-product (*no barf*) called On-the-Spot Acne Treatment from Neutrogena. Ever heard of/used it? At the first sign of a pimple (hummin’) comin’ atcha, you dab this stuff on it and poof, it disappears, mostly. Not too shabby if you ask me. They also have this one now called Rapid Clear, which is supposed to (I think) be newer/better.

Anybody else got any “to die for” products out there to share with the rest of us? It is Friday the 13th after all. 😉

Happy VHO7V Friday! Have a great weekend and I’ll see y’all next week!

P.S. If anyone wants 2 9th row tickets to tonight’s UH Bball game, comment “Go Bows!” below and they’re yours! I can’t make it. 😦 The only catch is that you gotta come getum from me cause I gotta work all day. 8) Shoots!

In the meantime, please join me in taking a moment to honor our country’s veterans…

See y’all on Friday! 🙂

Fun Day Monday: The Koala and the Little Lizard

November 9, 2009

Howzit! How was errryone’s weekend? We’ll start y’all out this week with a little giggle, forwarded to me by a friend/colleague. Enjoy, and I’ll meetcha at the bottom! 🙂

The Koala and the Little Lizard

A koala is sitting up a gumtree smoking a joint when a little lizard walks past and looks up and says “Hey Koala ! what are you doing?”

The Koala and the Little Lizard

The koala says: “Smoking a joint, come up and have some.”

So the little lizard climbs up and sits next to the koala and they have a few joints.

After a while the little lizard says his mouth is dry and is going to get a drink from the river.

But the little lizard is so stoned that he leans too far over and falls into the river.

A crocodile sees this and swims over to the little lizard and helps him to the side, then asks the little lizard: “What’s the matter with you?”

The little lizard explains to the crocodile that he was sitting smoking a joint with the koala in the tree, got too stoned and then fell into the river while taking a drink.

The crocodile says he has to check this out and walks into the rain forest, finds the tree where the koala is sitting finishing a joint, and he looks up and says “Hey you!”

The Koala and the Little Lizard

So the koala looks down at him and says

The Koala and the Little Lizard

“Duuuuuuude…….how much water did you drink?!!”

LOL! Pretty funny yeah?

Did you ever have a d’uh moment like this? Not necessarily a “stoned” moment, because I know none of us would ever take a hit (or two) from a joint, 8) but just, you know, a little double-take action. Like you were thinking one thing, but saw another. Use the comment area below to share your story.

Have a great week and for those of you who are off on Wednesday (Veteran’s Day), we’ll see you back here on Friday. Shooooots!
